Progress on my book


So the book is written, wasn’t expecting it to go like that lol. I figured I would write it as I painted but no, I ended up writing the whole story up front and now I have the rest of the paintings to do.

It’s been a learning curve so far, in a good way. I intended to post weekly new paintings with snippets of the story and that has not gone to plan either lol. Mainly because I am still learning how I work best and I’m finding that I don’t want to rush the paintings and have something that isn’t my best.

However I am enjoying posting the paintings with snippets to my email list when they are ready.

I thought I would give you a peek at the first painting I sent out back in January. Cute isn’t he.

So if you would like to follow along, seeing my paintings for the book as they are finished and get a snippet of the story please sign up to my email list to the right and make sure to check the box ‘originals’. You will also be the first to find out when I release new originals to my Etsy shop.

Originals for the book won’t be available for sale until the book release which will hopefully be May. Might be too ambitious but that is what I am aiming for.

Thank you to those already following along, I hope you are enjoying the journey with me.

I once made a book, but never got it published. I hope your book turns out well.
